"Volunteering at VCV has been a wonderful experience that I would highly recommend to everyone. From the minute I stepped foot in the apartment it felt like a home from home as everyone is so welcoming and kind, like one big family. All of our meals are cooked for us and every meal is delicious, I feel like I've been completely spoilt with delicious Vietnamese food. All of the students are lovely to teach and I was lucky enough to develop friendships with my students so often go out for drinks and dinner with them. At the weekends we usually go on trips to cool places in Vietnam and a few times me and some other volunteers got night buses to places in the North, my favourite was trekking in Sapa. The area we live in is really nice, I joined the gym and went to yoga every morning which suited the relaxed lifestyle we all live at VCV. I feel very lucky to have had this incredible opportunity and will be leaving Vietnam with friends for life."
